Pope Francis visited Nagasaki on November 24, 2019, and calls for a ‘world without nuclear

weapons’ at the Ground Zero.

 


 

Disastrous War must not be repeated. The plutonium atomic bomb exploded about 500m over the

central monument at 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945. The most part of Nagasaki was destroyed, and

a tremendous number of lives were lost. And about 70,000 of Nagasaki’s 240,000 residents died

instantly, and up to 60,000 were injured.

The total number of residents died may have been as many as 80,000, including those who died

from radiation poisoning in the following months. Even now, many atomic bomb survivors are

suffering. The list of names of the atomic bomb victim who died up to now is stored in the monument.
